    A healing spot to sit

    DAY 147

    A Made-Over Space

    Back on Day 14, we gave one of the counseling rooms in Nakivale a makeover. That new space has been so loved that our counseling team wanted to makeover another of their counseling spaces! One of the most important services we offer is counseling and having spaces that are welcoming and soothing will make all the difference.

    So, today we are clearing out broken-down file cabinets and wobbly desks and testing our carpentry skills.

    “Removing the desk is like removing a barrier. The set-up should be open, comfortable. It is better when providing counseling,” said Deus, ARC Technical Advisor.

    After putting together the furniture, the next step was to add a few details to brighten the space. A soft rug that would provide comfort, plants to encourage growth and artwork to add color – all small changes that transformed the space into a calming, inviting environment.

    “We want to give the best to the people we serve,” said Hope, ARC Counselor. “Now, we are better able to do that.”
